Pakistan's batting lineup dominated the England bowling unit on the second day's play in the Lord's test match, as they ended the day at 350 for 8 in their first innings. At this point in time, they are leading by 166 runs with two wickets still in hand.

Pakistan started the morning session positively and compiled on the overnight score of 50 for 1. Haris Sohail (39 runs) fell to Mark Wood after some stiff resistance with the score on 87 for 2. Azhar Ali couldn't last after he hit his half-century, as he got out lbw on exact 50 runs to James Anderson.

Asad Shafiq (59 runs) and Babar Azam kept things moving nicely as Pakistan went past the first innings score of England.

But, Shafiq and Captain Sarfaraz Ahmed (9 runs) got out in quick succession to Ben Stokes with the score on 227 for 5 and later, Babar Azam got a blow on the arm, which made him leave the pitch while being not out on 68 runs.

This meant Pakistan were in a spot of bother, but Faheem Ashraf (37 runs) and Shadab Khan (52 runs) steadied the ship for them. Though England kept chipping in with wickets, Pakistan lead stood at 166 runs, as they ended the day's play at the score of 350-8.

Mohammad Amir, who is not out at 19 runs and Mohammad Abbas, who is yet to open his account are at the crease.

It will be interesting to see if Babar Azam comes to bat or not.

For England, James Anderson and Ben Stokes were the picks of the bowlers, as they took three wickets each. Stuart Broad and Mark Wood took one wicket each, while debutant spinner Dominic Bess went wicketless in his spell.
